Kenshandra Mitchell - Class of 2020

Before law school

I graduated with my masters in criminal justice from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) in May 2017, and I got my bachelor’s degree in criminal justice there in 2015. For the past two years, I worked was an administrative assistant for UTC’s Student Support Services.

Why WVU Law?

I was awarded the WEB DuBois Fellowship to come to WVU Law, which helped me a lot financially. WVU Law was also appealing to me because it’s a Top 100 law school, and I’ve heard nothing but great things about it here. I felt like it was the right choice for me.

Law Interest

I am interested in both criminal law and corporate law. I don’t know exactly what I want to do when I finish law school, but I am drawn to those two areas of practice so far.

In 10 years…

Hopefully in 10 years, I’ll have landed my dream job, whatever that turns out to be. I would really love to go back home to Tennessee and work, but if I’m offered a job somewhere else, I’ll be happy relocating. I hope I will be comfortable and secure in my life, and maybe I’ll start a family.

Outside of law school…

I tend to focus a lot on my studies and my schoolwork. I like to watch TV a lot, though. I love “How to Get Away with Murder” and anything on the Investigation Discovery Channel.
